Road Tripping along the Garden Route

South Africa is unrivalled for beautiful, scenic drives and travelling by road is one of the best ways to see what the country has to offer. If you’re a firm believer that it’s not about the destination but the journey, then a South African road trip holiday is a stunning way to explore the diverse region. From the dramatic landscape in the Drakensberg to the beautiful coastal routes in the Western Cape, South Africa is a smorgasbord of scenery that is just waiting to be discovered.

From the border of Botswana to the utmost tip of the Western Cape, travellers can expect to cross nearly 2000 kilometres in a time period of around one day.
